Supported living refers to a housing model designed to provide individuals, often with disabilities or special needs, the necessary support to live as independently as possible within their communities. This type of living arrangement focuses on promoting autonomy, choice, and inclusion.

In supported living, individuals typically have their own homes or apartments, either owned or leased, where they receive assistance based on their specific needs. Support services can include help with daily living activities such as personal care, meal preparation, budgeting, and accessing community resources.
The level of support varies and is tailored to the individual’s requirements, allowing them to lead a more self-directed life while having assistance when necessary. The goal is to enhance the person’s quality of life, encourage community engagement, and foster a sense of belonging.
Supported living can be particularly beneficial for individuals with developmental disabilities, mental health challenges, or other conditions that may require ongoing support. It is a person-centered approach that values the unique needs and preferences of each individual, aiming to create an environment where they can thrive and participate fully in community life.
